Is there any way to pass the password for an SCP command via the command
line as a switch? I'd like to embed SCP in a script and pass the password
once through a command line input from the master script... By defauly any
time I use the -B mode it says passwords are required, and without -B it
asks for the password after the command starts to execute.
